The San Franciscans: Mira Giambattista
Mira Giambattista came to the U.S. from her former home near Naples, Italy aboard the ill-fated Andrea Doria in 1956. "We came here eight days on the ship," Mira says, "It was the last trip before that very ship fell down." Mira is a favorite at St. Philip's Bingo in Noe Valley where her lucky number is B-13.
